R2-D2 Drone Is a Thing From The Future
YouTuber and Star Wars fan Don Melara modded the quadcopter. Nicknamed “Arturo,” this flying astromech includes a DJI GPS autopilot navigation system, an articulating dome, LED jetpack lights, a speaker box and a camera installed into its eye.
“It took approximately eight days to complete the build,” Melara wrote on his YouTube page. “It was always a childhood dream of mine that someday, someone would build a flying version of our favorite Star Wars droid. Now, thanks to today’s technology and a little bit of a passion for aviation it has become a reality.”
